"Space" really is a "Jam"
...and an excellent one at that. There's very little of the "space" aspect of these segments of the show, but more just a lot of experimenting with themes, including one brief shot at "Close Encounters" (there are several during this month before the full blown version in Eugene), and several teases of Wharf Rat before it get there entirely. This Jam is really the highlight of this show.

We all Benefit
This show was a Stop Nuclear Power benefit. My 8th show, it was a beautiful venue. Donna was in top form (yes, I know some of you may not believe it, but she could be great). There was some trouble with the ushers in this venerable theater expecting us to stay in our seats (!) - not a reasonable expectation for Dead Heads. Uncle BoBo (Bill Graham) came out to apologize for the ugliness & offer free admission at Bakersfield if we showed our benefit ticket stubs. Always a mensch, our Bill!

Thanx Reinhart, Bob, & Derek. This show has escaped my ears until now. Decent recording though there is some cracking sounds when music gets loud. Very upbeat and energetic. I love the Phil/Drums segment and the Space to follow is quite good. There is a hint of Jerry's laryngitis, not nearly as noticeble as Fresno 2 nights later. If your software will allow an overburn, you can put Bertha>Good Lovin' on the end of disc 1 leaving most of set 2 intact. You will only need 2 discs as well. I am playing Mexicali>Big River on my radio show tomorrow. Peace
